It was a double celebration for actress-singer Haylie Duff when she made the party scene at the Bank in the Bellagio. First, she was in 7th Heaven again over landing a recurring role on the new Fox sitcom Barely Legal. Then Haylie, who also starred in Material Girls and Napoleon Dynamite, blew out the candles for her 24th birthday!
Boyfriend Nick Zano and hot couple Channing Tatum, who stars as Duke in this summer’s highly anticipated G.I Joe, and Jenna Dewan were among the group of 14. They started Haylie’s night with dinner at Yellowtail. Chef Akira Back served up his signature tuna pizza and rock shrimp dishes as the group enjoyed sake bombs!
After posing on the red carpet, Haylie, whose sister Hilary will be at the Bellagio next weekend for the Siegfried & Roy farewell benefit, and her crew were seated at a VIP table in the Bank overlooking the dance floor. Spywitnesses told me Haylie and Nick were in high spirits, danced and smooched all night long and downed shots of Patron with their friends. Channing and Jenna also were seen canoodling throughout the night.
They broke from the lip-locks long enough to enjoy the pink cake created by Jean-Philippe Patisserie. Also spotted at Haylie’s festivities were Shayne Lamas, winner of Season 12 of The Bachelor; One Tree Hill heartthrob Brett Claywell, who stars in the new series Dollhouse; and Robert Kardashian.
